I am a little bit lost about what we oldies can do during 3 days in the TdP NP end of November. Although we are quite fit we are very reluctant booking an expensive hotel in the park with our limited possibilities for longer hikes. We are on a 5 weeks Argentina/Chile tour and have a budget which does not allow for these all inclusive hotels in the park. The only accommodation which seem affordable are Tyndall Hosteria and the Cabanas del Paine which are outside the park. I checked renting a car in Puerto Natales (we are coming from El Calafate and go to Punta Arenas), but there is nothing available. If we stay at Tyndall Hosteria – without a car - would we still have a chance seeing some highlights of the park by means of a day excursion? I could not figure out on the hotel website what kind of excursions they offer. We do not speak Spanish.
We really want to come to the NP but we seem to have two handicaps: We are not hikers and we are”poor”. Any encouagement?
